I played football there and had a great time with everything that happened at the school but the administration was very poor. The teachers in the hall would dis agree with them and my personal though about then is that they did stuff for themselves more then for there job and the school but other then that the school was great. I played more then just football there, I also played rugby and wrestled. I really thought that it was a great place to go for activies and other fevents

I transferred to Piedra Vista High School during my freshman year, and when I got there, they made me feel welcome! The staff and students are very kind. They have a very safe campus, the teachers will care for the students and help them with anything going on, either its school or in life. I learned how to prepare myself for college and I had an amazing experience there. I don't think that there's nothing that I would change at Piedra Vista High School.
I moved to Farmington from California in 2014. I was so nervous to start school especially as a Freshman. On my first day, all of the teachers were very welcoming and nice. The students were also kind and answered any questions I had. Throughout all my years here, I've noticed that the administration actually cares about you and want to help you in any way that they possibly can. This is a very impressive High School and it is a privilege to be at such a great school.
